Ghouls 'N Ghosts, aka Daimakaimura (Great Demon World Village), is a famous arcade created by Capcom as a sequel to Ghosts 'n Goblins. It was initially released in 1988.
It was ported to many home platforms, computers, and consoles. The porting to Commodore 64, Amiga, Atari ST, ZX Spectrum, made by Software Creations, was not exactly perfect. Many elements were missing, which could be understandable for the 8-bit versions but not for the others. The Amiga version of Ghosts 'n Goblins made by Elite (strangely published some months after the release of the sequel) is far superior. However, the Commodore 64 and Amiga versions of Ghouls 'N Ghosts deserve to be played at least for one reason: the fantastic soundtrack composed by Tim Follin. The arrangements and new songs written by this legendary musician are considered among the best videogame soundtracks ever created. And, for the C64 version, an outstanding example of the possibilities of the audio chip of this machine (known as SID).
But in terms of gameplay, we can suggest the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis port, programmed by another legendary name: Yuji Naka. In case you don't know this name, he's the guy that created Sonic the Hedgehog for the Mega Drive. Wow, now you know.
The choice is yours, beware of the skeletons and the flying goblins, and have fun!
